Manual Lymphatic Drainage
What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)?
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a specialised form of massage that has powerful cleansing,
relaxing, pain relieving & immunological effects.
It is a gentle, flowing, rhythmic massage and can be applied to a wide range of physical conditions
to great effect and has the added bonus of being a very relaxing treatment.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage helps to detoxify the body and stimulate the body’s immune system
to promote healing and to fight infection.
The light massage of the lymphatic system helps the body move excess toxins, water and
metabolic waste in a way that cleanses the body and promotes the immune system and healing.
If you are coming for these treatments due to chronic oedema or post surgery you are likely to need more
than one or two treatments. You may like to to look at the discounted treatments I offer.
These are valid for 2 years and so allow your appointments to be spaced as required,
dependant upon your availabilty and the speed of your recovery
Please have a read of my blog with more specific information about MLD after general or cosmetic surgery.
